There is nothing more delightful on a hot summer day than entering your home to
cool, clean air. Medway Oil & Propane offers several options to keep your home cool
during the warm and hot weather months.
A central air conditioner is either a split-system unit or a packaged unit.
A split-system central air conditioning system has an outdoor unit which contains
the compressor and an indoor cabinet which contains the evaporator. The evaporator
coil is installed in the cabinet or main supply duct of the furnace or heat pump. If your
home already has a furnace but no air conditioning, a split-system is the most economical installation for central air.
A packaged central air conditioning system is when the evaporator, condenser, and
compressor are all located in one cabinet, which usually is placed on a roof or concrete
slab next to a house’s foundation. This type of air conditioning is also used in small commercial buildings. Air supply and return ducts come from indoors through the home’s exterior wall or roof to connect with the packaged air. Packaged air conditioning often include electric heating coils or a propane or natural gas furnace. This combination of
air conditioning and central heat eliminates the need for a separate furnace indoors.
Ductless air conditioning is used for homes that have no duct work available. Ductless air conditioning systems can be easily and precisely controlled using a remote control. The ductless systems are a quiet and efficient alternative to window air conditioners.
There is nothing worse than having your AC System breakdown during a hot summer day! We’re available to help you get your AC up and running again, but don’t forget your annual tune-up — #1 preventative for breakdown.
An air conditioning system can be one if your biggest investments in your home. Keeping your system tuned up annually will increase the life of your unit. Tune ups are highly encouraged before the start of the warm weather months. Just like you check your oil before a long trip in your car, one should check the parts and elements of your AC system before the long hot summer.
Here’s an added benefit: Scheduled maintenance will reduce your monthly electric bills! Tune Ups and Maintenance checks will spot things that generally cause your system to run”non stop” which creates high electric bills.
